Well, this is a bit out of my territory but a fun thing ( I hope) for everyone who loves yarn. Whether you knit or crochet, spin or weave, this song is for you! But first...a little back story...💖 I have the privilege of teaching ongoing small groups of women who knit and crochet. Several … Continue reading YARN LOVE – a song
Draw & Stitch Together through Advent!
I marvel that it is holiday time once again. Somehow the seasons roll 'round more quickly and I know all too well how fast this wonderful season will fly by if I don't take time to drink it in. I'm planning on stitching and drawing with the purpose of slowing myself down a bit, taking time … Continue reading Draw & Stitch Together through Advent!

July is here!! And I'm super excited about this month for lots of reasons. There will be celebrations - the Fourth, our daughter's half-birthday, and my own birthday at the end of the month.

Kork Nisses Discovered and Designed
Every now and then I discover something that sparks a flurry of creativity. Perhaps "flurry" isn't the word...more like a snowstorm! Over the Thanksgiving holiday I found these little cuties and rushed to click on the Free Pattern links. But when I did, there was no pattern to be found. Not even the website. For … Continue reading Kork Nisses Discovered and Designed
Knitterly Arts Podcast!
A creative life is rarely a straight arrow path. Perhaps precisely because it IS creative, the path is winding and circuitous, with many side trails leading off the main one which eventually brings you back on track or becomes the new main path. This is how my own creative life has felt for nearly 20 years. I … Continue reading Knitterly Arts Podcast!
Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice!
"Three little pumpkins sitting on a rail..." Well, that's as far as my rhyming mind will take me today. I had thoughts of: "One said, 'Hey, won't you go my bail?" no, no, that won't do! Or: "One said, Hey, better check your e-mail!" ugh. Not good. So I'm just gonna leave it alone and … Continue reading Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice!
What if you could create for just 7 days, a mere week of your life, and at the end of the week have a small series of works that hold together, have taught you a lot, and bring a smile to your face? And what if you didn't have to go anywhere or pay lots … Continue reading What if….?
Placemat Pattern for YOU!
Some years ago, my mom gave me a couple of white cotton placemats that my Grandma Bowen had crocheted. She was an avid maker (artist, knitter, crocheter, embroiderer), as is my mom, and now me, and well... my girls are makers too!! It's lovely to have a heritage of creativity, art and making! So for … Continue reading Placemat Pattern for YOU!
I am realizing anew that there's a time for every season under heaven. (photography courtesy of Hazel Kuehn Photography) There's a time for celebrating. And a time for grieving the passing of an era. There's a time for illness. And a time for healing. There's a time for making marks. And a time for white … Continue reading Time
